for whenever subsidies they been entitled to. it'd different story for the medicaid expansion. the aca specifically does limit eligibility for the new medicaid coverage to people under 65. presumably there would need to be a statutory change if medicare eligibility age was raised to 67 or even higher, that provision would need to change to enable people to qualify for the medicaid expansion. in states that don't expand medicaid those adults with incomes between 100%, and 138% of poverty would be eligible for subsidies in the exchange and they would be subject to the mandate, but for people with income below 100% of poverty in states that do not opt for medicaid expansion, they would not be eligible for medicaid or subsidies because the law limits those to people with incomes 100% or above. having spoken to my colleagues at kaiser about this issue who followed this issue more carefully than i have, they said cygnus -- secretary cbs has said these individuals would not be subject to mandate penalties if they lived in a state that did not expand medicaid and selling this coverage gap. >>

is the first to look at the effects of increasing medicare eligibility age in the post aca era. and that's important because it to scare some extent alleviates the concern that tricia mentioned that people who lost their eligibility for medicare would lose access to health insurance entirely. under the law they would have access to new sources of coverage. so our study also goes beyond some of the other analysis to look at the effect of raising the age of eligibility not just on federal spending and medicare spinedding but also on state spending, on out of pocket costs for the 65 and 66-year-olds who shift out of medicare, on employer cost, on cost for part b. premium for remain. on exchange premium for younger enroll lee as well as the totalling health spending effect of the changes across the different payers. we estimated that about 5 million 65 and 66-year-old would be affected. we assumed that all would have coverage from another source if not from medicare the supreme court decision to make the medicaid expansion optional calls this an assumption in to question to some degree. in t

that you have the aca, that you can have this discussion in a way that was much harder to have before. it is really a way of saying for those who are able to continue working, can we begin to reorient the expectation for the next generation which is what we're talking about, recognizing that for people who are in that pre, now premedicare age, they will no longer have to postpone taking care of health care because they, in fact, have an option. so it is why this discussion takes on a whole different tone as a result of the affordable care act having been passed. >> i mean, i would say we have options, but we don't know if they're affordable options, and that's really the big difference. >> al milliken, am media. what can we learn from other countries? i'm wondering if any of you have studied the health benefit programs elsewhere, and do any have comparable insurance programs, and what has been the experience in other nations? >> most of them are struggling mightily with the promises they are made which encourage people to e retire even earlier tan they do in the united states -- than

of instructive closure. i was with him in aca aca laska- he gave one of the most amazing tributes i had ever heard. i made him promise that he would teach me how to speak like that. [laughter] he said, what do you mean, chaplain? i said i want your eloquence of diction, i want your brilliance of metaphor, i want your poetry of imagination, and he smiled and dis missed my request. i had the opportunity of reminding him at walter reid that he still had unfinished work to do with me, please. i still need your help. i was blessed to be able to hold his hand. i was blessed to be able to recite the scriptures, and the last passage that i recited before he transitioned from time in to eternity, is the passage with words that have been whispered by more people in trouble, spoken in more hospital rooms, uttered by more dying lips, and than perhaps any other words in scripture. the 23rd osama bin laden. i-- psalm was standing bind you. the lord is my shepard, i shall not want. he makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters, he restores my soul. he leads me in the path of right

recovery. in terms of health care costs related to the aca, while most business leaders that we have spoken to have said is they understand we needed to do something. small-business owners are impacted disproportionately by rising health-care costs. the current health care plans work for them less well than they do for larger companies because they don't have buying power. if you look at some of the reforms, you see a number of efforts to try to reduce costs for small businesses to, like creating exchanges, for example. small in 2011, small businesses paid 25% more for insurance than large companies. the exchange is meant to help small business. you are right. with the new regulations set to take effect in a couple of years, it is another reason to be careful and protect small businesses from tax increases. what the obama people will tell you is that they have cut taxes for small business 17 times and 90% of the small businesses in america would not be effected by higher individual taxes. host: here is "the miami herald" this morning. pennsylvania. independent caller. caller: he said it ear
